#7119 closed Bug (fixed)

Cursor skipping additional character after contentEditable="false"

Reported by: Dinu Owned by:

Component: Core : Read-only Version: 3.3
Keywords: IBM Cc: satya_minnekanti@…



  • arrows, backspace and del should work around contenteditable spans
  • no wrong refactoring should be due to CK

1) Set contents to

ABCD<span contenteditable="false">EFGH</span>IJKL

Firefox: arrows move caret one character off, effectively skipping one extra character; backspace doesn't work on span, del works but removes one extra character

2) Set contents to

ABCD<span contenteditable="false">EF<span contenteditable="true">12</span>GH</span>IJKL

Webkit: Placing caret after F or H and hit backspace, or before E or G and press Del, strange refactoring occurs.
IE: cursor can't enter or leave inner span using arrows; probably browser related
Firefox: ditto

(Unrelated yet related): API demo seems broken in Opera, can't set editor contents. Will try later.

I'm not sure if I needed to create separate tickets, seems that since the test case is this specific functionality (have keyboard operations work on contenteditable areas), should all go in one place.

Confirmed. Second test case, under IE and Firefox are related to first, where cursor skips one character. Because it is a bug which also occurs in previous versions of CKEditor, I changed Summary of this ticket.

The webkit refactoring doesn't seem connected to the cursor skipping peculiarities...

Thanks to #9764 most of these issues (if not all) were fixed in CKEditor. Although, there's no support for nested inline editables (#10974).
